Edgar Baird

Edgar Baird, aged 25 years, died last night about 6 o'clock at the Seton infirmary after an operation for appendicitis. He is survived by a father and mother, five brothers and a sister. He was a well known young man and was held in high esteem by all those who knew him. The fact that he was soon to be married makes his death an especially sad one. The funeral will be held this afternoon from the family residence in the northwest part of the city.
